About Egg Allergies:
For some people, egg (and egg products) are a source of urgent, dangerous and potentially deadly, allergic reactions. Foods made from egg ingredients may not necessarily sound as if they are derived from egg products. Examples of these include words such as “albumin”, “binder”, “emulsifier” or “lecithin”. These ingredients (and many more) are likely derived from egg protein and thus can cause serious allergic reactions in sensitive individuals.

Anaphylactic Shock could occur in consumers who are allergic to foods containing egg within a very short time, potentially leading to severe injury and/or death. If you suspect Anaphylactic Shock, call-9-1-1 or other local emergency number for immediate transport to a medical center. If trained and an emergency kit is available, it may be appropriate to give an injectable drug such as Epinephrine (also known as adrenaline or adrenalin) to the affected individual. Trade names of these products include EpiPen, Twinject, Adrenaclick, Anapen, Jext, Allerject and Auvi-Q. Please note: even patients who are apparently stabilized should still go to hospital for emergency evaluation. Further treatment is often necessary.
